We met with Andrew Raseij, the chairman of the New York Tech Meetup and founder of Personal Democracy Media, at a coffee shop on 12th and Broadway. It seems so crazy that big players like him would have even heard of us, let alone ask us to meet them for coffee. We were really excited and brought most of the team. He said something we’ve been hearing from a lot of people, that what we’re doing is true civic hacking, not just another app to further clutter the internet, but something that really brings technology to problems of governance. He offered to help us network and fundraise, and even comped us all tickets to the Personal Democracy Forum with Edward Snowden (via satellite of course) and a bunch of other amazing speakers.
